Canon 5D MARK V probably in June/July?

I've noticed that the 5D has usually been updated within 5-6 months of the 1D over the past decade. Since the 1DX MARK III just got announced this month, that would put the announcement date somewhere around June/July.

Have there been any rumors to support this yet?

I don't think there are any substantial rumors about a 5DV in June/July. I think it's really unknown at this time whether there will be another EF mount 5D release, especially given how 5D-esque the R is turning out to be (doubly so given the reported specs for the RII).

I'm reasonably certain that there will be a 5DmkV. In one of the white papers they released today they wrote,
"Separately, the past five years have seen the rapid adoption of the mirrorless alternative to the established optical viewfinder-based DSLR. But, that still remains a gigantic global base and many are not ready to let go of a long familiarity with the DSLR that has served so many, so well. Canon has definitively stepped into the mirrorless world and has a firmly established roadmap to serve this growing constituency with both R-mount lenses and cameras. Nevertheless, a still well-defined parallel domain of DSLR and mirrorless has dictated a major development into a whole new- generation DSLR — and that is the EOS-1D X Mark III — the topic of this paper."

I think they mean exactly what they're saying, which is that they made the 1DX iii because they believe their customers want that kind of DSLR.

Bear in mind, I'm not saying you won't get a 5DV, but I am saying that I don't think it's a great idea to try to read between the lines with this kind of thing.

With all the EOS R stuff predicted for this year (two bodies, several lenses) and together with the 1DX3 my guess is that a 5D5 is "too much" for this year.
I really would like to see yet another iteration of the 5D series, either this or next year. But If I would have to place a bet I'd put it on a later in 2021 date.

Rumors on a 5D5 were only few and quite vague.
